I know that most people can make caprese without a recipe, but it’s one of those things that I just forget about. It’s a good one to keep in your arsenal. Not only does it have a fancy Italian name, but it’s also versatile. Put caprese (add chicken) on a baguette and you’ve got a French staple sandwich. Or, just eat the caprese alone, and you’ve got a great app.
So, for those of you who need a friendly reminder of a great side dish/appetizer/sandwich, here you go:
Slice your mozzarella and tomatoes. Lay tomato slices on a plate. Place basil leaves on tomato slices. Then add mozzarella on top. Drizzle balsamic and EVOO on top and voila! You’ve got yourself some caprese deliciousness.
Eat up, y’all!
